Saint Paul’s church, the second largest church of Munich

After the Ruhmeshalle we are now looking to the other side of the Theresiënwiese where we see one of the most important churches of Munich. This is the second largest church after the Dom or the Frauenkirche. This is also a neo-gothic church from the early 20th century, so very young. The exterior is very impressive with its towers of 96m high. The interior is sober but looks powerful. It was however not easy to visit the Saint Paul’s church, in the evening it is most of the time closed.

Na de Ruhmeshalle kijken we nu naar de andere kant van de Theresiënwiese waar we één van de belangrijkste kerken van München zien. Het is de tweede grootste kerk van de stad na de Dom of de Frauenkirche. Dit is ook een nieuw gotische kerk, gebouwd in het begin van de 20ste eeuw, dus nog zeer jong. De buitenkant is zeer indrukwekkend met zijn 96m hoge torens. Het interieur is sober maar ziet er krachtig uit. Het was echter niet gemakkelijk de kerk te bezoeken daar deze ’s avonds meestal gesloten is..

  3. Wonderful shots! I remember this church because it was only a few blocks from our hotel but in the opposite direction from most of our walking. I passed by once but it was closed so this is the first time I've seen the inside.
